After arriving from a long journey, the lovely staff at Lamphu greeted us with smiling faces and carried our bags up to the room. The room was generally nice and clean with a large balcony. There is a great rooftop bar where you can watch storms rolling in (we had a few!) and the buffet breakfasts were really lovely. Go for the banana pancakes...best we tasted in Thailand!
The dining area was very nice with inside and outside areas to sit in and there is a lovely, cool swimming pool. The side of the pool has a supply of towels for guests so you don't have to get your own wet!
We organised a trip to Ayutthaya through the reception and it was all done efficiently. They were also very good for advice and wrote things in Thai if you needed them for taxi drivers etc. They were great at letting you know how much taxis should cost for different destinations so you didn't get ripped off.
Location was brilliant if you want to be near the old town, Wat Pho and Palace etc. Only 5/10 minute walk from Khao San Road, you are close enough but far enough away from the busy streets. The canal area is nice and there is a 7/11 two mins away and a great little bar on the corner (The Rolling Bar). There are a few cats near the bar with a tiny little, affectionate kitten that sleeps on a chair in the bar but lives with its friends under the subway. Tuna is only 42baht at the 7/11 so PLEASE FEED THE KITTEN!!! :D As mewing from my backpack may have been noticed at customs, I couldn't bring it home so can everyone look after her, please? She is tiny with a broken tail and likes cuddles.
Nothing really but when you shower, the water goes all over the bathroom turning into a bit of a puddle which can go into the bedroom. The rooms were not checked every day so we still had a puddle on our return some days. The shower curtain was also a little mouldy. We also ran out of toilet roll with the room not being checked (inconvenient if you're already on the loo!) but I went to reception to ask for some more and it was already in the room by the time I got back up to the room!
Finally, this hotel is a great little place to see Bangkok old town and I would happily go there again. Lovely staff, friendly vibe, umbrellas to borrow if it's raining and general a top place to stay! Hurrah for Lamphu Tree :)
